Incremental internal rate of return (Inc-IRR)

To be eligible for FFT (Forests for Tomorrow) funding the prescribed regime of treatments must meet the FFT Incremental internal rate of return (Inc-IRR) criteria. A 2% Inc-IRR is employed to balance the economic return of reforestation investments with future timber supply and other resource values and objectives.

Variation to levels between 0 and 2% will be utilized when benefits to timber supply or other resource values reflect a higher social priority
